Strength:

this bike has a very good group set,it lends its self to up grades,a great entry level bike,a good climbing bike,

Weakness:

the dart 3 forks. i dindnt realise i needed new forks untill i did ballinastoe co wicklow my mates had to put the cube back in the van ,my arms and neck were in bits for the next three days ,towards the end of the trail my arms were so pumpted i could bearley use the brakes.

i replaced the dart 3 with a 100mm fox float rl ,this was pure magic.i also noticed the addition of a reverb seat dropper pushed the the seat forward giving the bike a better centre of gravity,i know there are better bikes out there most of my friends upgraded to full suspension but i really am attached to this cube i wont be changing any time soon.

Strength:

light weight, smooth shifting, great brakes, painted graphics(no decals), good wheels and tires

Weakness:

brakes take awhile to seat in.

For the price you just cannot beat it! Cannondale bikes with the same quality components are almost twice the price. The same for Speacialized and the rest.
Dollar value exceptional. The real bottom line is someone In the U.S. needs to start importing these.

Strength:

Lite great set up for the money, will take a beating, better than the rider.

Weakness:

Had a clicking sound for a few months took it back to the shop where i purchased the bike and they could not figure the problem out. It just went away

Great bike for the price. with a few up grades can be even better. we ride 3X a week about 15 miles per ride and no real problems.

I am 6'1" 240lbs and the bike holds up well. Got the large and have put it through hell.

Not into changing much on the bike yet trying to work on a budget. as i find problems they get upgraded.

Strength:

Everything is working smooth.
Very happy with the brakes. (My first Hydr. Discs)

Weakness:

Dirt is easily seen on the yellow frame. Cables make ugly mark which can not come off.

Very happy with this bike.
Unfortunately I bought a large. Should have been medium. Didnt listen to advice. Was convinced by salesman to select the bigger one.

tonto   Cross Country Rider [Jun 09, 2009]
Strength:

Simply awesome!..Had mine 9 months, gone 5000km and its still just amazing...faultless. i've thrown EVERYTHING at it and it just keeps getting better! Nothing has ever gone wrong with it and its solid as a rock

great ergonomics - munches up hills, flies down em. Rebas + poploc = perfect. Oro brakes are really responsive. 11kg isn't too bad for throwing on yer back if you need to

Weakness:

Oro's were a bit squeaky for a long while! they bedded in eventually and was worth the wait

The bottom line is - if you want a bike you will truly love and you have 900quid, get this. if you don't, save up! you cannot get better value for money and it will never let you down. you'll understand!

Strength:

Super light, all components working well

Weakness:

None so far

Great bike, I got the 2009 which has been upgarded since last year. Has Tora SL up front, Stroker Ryde brakes and shimano XT/SLX gearing. Very light compared to others in the same range. From all accounts, the frame should withstand a lifetime of upgrades. Big cheers to CRC, bike was race-able out of the box within 20 mins. I'll keep replacing parts and riding this thing as long as I can. Highly recommended

Schlumberger   Weekend Warrior [Nov 02, 2008]

Real value for money. I changed the cranks to FSA K-Force Lite because these are really superb (but expensive, 800 USD). I am a fanatic beginner but this bike is reliable and easy to handle due to its limited weight and good cornering. To my opinion, one of the best choices for a first MTB.

Raj   Cross Country Rider [Sep 24, 2008]
Strength:

Beautiful fork, poploc is such a lovely function - way more useful than you imagine. Nice geometry, makes you really go for it! very swift gear changes with the XT/LX kit and the ORO's are amazing brakes for the money.

Oh, yeah, and a very attractive coat- so much better than the crappy pictures make out- dont be a wuss, go for the white and blue, its just lovely

Weakness:

Brakes took a while to get set up right but didn't need bleeding or anything, just a bit of fiddling, not a big point.

Needed chunkier tyres for wet Scottish riding, but at 2.25" they dont come much better as stock- better than Kenda Nevegal and the likes, been replaced with Panaracer Smokes, but they are good winter tyres for most bits, just Scotland is really wet and muddy

A perfect bike for the amateur who really loves a dream bike that does everything you want it to, I cant think of anything wrong with it - Lovely, I havent experienced it when tail end "jumps like a little crazy horse."

cesalec   Weekend Warrior [Aug 28, 2008]
Strength:

This bavarian beauty is awesome (no im not german, im mexican and live in austria). It climbs like an Alp goat, it breaks af it had claws, i totally love the PopLoc concept on the front fork. The tires....speechles (my favourites) Nobby Nic in the rear wheel and Racing Ralph on the front. its light (ca. 11Kg). and i totally love the look in anodized black, it looks so cool.

Weakness:

Not sold in America!!!

Incredible bike, super climber, just drop the seat and there U go rocking down the alps.

Although when the terreain is bumpy with rocks and big tree roots, the tail jumps like a little crazy horse. (well after all is a Hardtail and not an Allmountain right?).
